H.U.L.K. (Huggable Unselfish Lovable Kids) Sibshop for boys and their dads
Being a brother can often be full or exploding emotions. Frustration and anger can blow up like mixing baking soda and vinegar. This Sibshop for boys has been an opportunity to look at how siblings can keep those explosions from becoming overwhelming them and turning into the HULK.
Chemistry teacher and Sib, Ben Stern (featured in SibNews), puts us through fun experiments, competitions, and discussions with the boys (ages 6 and older)…PLUS boys can bring their dads, a grandpa, a big brother, an uncle or other grown up friend. From HULK to Huggable Unselfish Lovable Kids, siblings experience the fun and challenges of growing up as a Sib.
